admiration and my gratitude to hillary rodham clinton for the extraordinary job that she has done over the last four years. i agree wholeheartedly with president obama, who said that she has been one of the finest secretaries of state in our nation's history. when she took on this responsibility in january of 2009, hillary clinton was already one of the most celebrated and accomplished women in the world. certainly her reputation and renown have been tremendous assets as she worked to restore america's standing in the world. but over the last four years, hillary clinton has been the ultimate workhorse public servant as opposed to the showhorse. now, this comes as no surprise to me and to other former colleagues here in the senate. we know that she is a leader of extraordinary substance and talent, with an amazing work ethic. secretary of state clinton has set records as the most traveled secretary for time in office, visiting some 42 countries just in the last year alone. and she will be remembered for her tireless efforts to promote the empowerment of women worldwide and for her many

of state, hillary clinton. she has represented the world. she is a world figure. she has represented america to the world and especially with her diligence, her grace, her hard work and her incredible diplomatic skill. she's traveled to 112 countries. she racked up a million miles, met with thousands of foreign dignitaries. she's reached nearly every corner of the globe and made history on the way. and in each assignment, she has left an indelible mark, empowering women, supporting sustainable development, supporting the establishment of civil societies, and promoting the tenets of democracy: one man, one vote, one woman, one vote, human rights, and the rule of law. mr. nelson: now, i might note that she particularly has underscored the plight of women. and, of course, we know as we see societies that live almost in another time and age centuries before in the way that they treat women. the secretary of state has tried to help modernize those societies, and she's done so by empowering and appointing one of her personal friends, milan vivier, to be the global ambassador for women's af

senator john kerry today as secretary of state, succeeding hillary clinton who steps down friday. margaret brennan has the latest. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you and to charlie. and john kerry may be approved as the next secretary of state by this afternoon. he could be sworn in to office by the end of the week. the job of being america's top diplomat is nonpartisan. so senator kerry must resign his massachusetts senate seat effective friday. there are a few technicalities before the transition. today the senate foreign relations committee which oversee the state department has to vote on the nomination. but members know kerry. he served on the committee for almost 30 years. and not a single one of the 16 members is expected to vote against him. so once they approve the full senate, can then confirm him within hours. he really didn't voice any departures from secretary clinton's views during his four-hour-long hearing last week. >> margaret, is secretary clinton -- as secretary clinton leaves office, i understand she got somewhat of a gift from president obama. >> reporter:
institute, were not capable of doing that. that's a historic reality. in the 1990s when bill clinton said there's an election based on that, it was the house and senate that legislative sanctions on iran, the push for, like it or not, freedom for the iraqi people to push for sanctions on cuba, to push her more engagement and exactly which are talking about, that really pushed for in a relationship with india. i could go on and on. nato expansion. all the things taken for granted but not in initiative. they're members of congress on capitol hill who change the world in a very meaningful way and that's still an opportunity if we recognize we need to care about. sorry for that little speech. >> how do we know kind of the counterterrorism, is very much her?

prepared to do that. >> reporter: outgoing secretary of state hillary clinton recognized a deep divisions in congress have hurt progress. >> you can't let compromise become a dirt write word because then you veer towards fanaticism. >> reporter: she laid out the complicated map kerry would navigate. security challenges in north africa and the middle east. departmental changes in response to that deadly terrorist attack in benghazi, libya. >> every day a mixture of trying to end crises, help people be smart about using the tools of american diplomacy. >> reporter: kerry's colleagues say he is ready for the challenges. >> respect his work in the senate, his knowledge and backgrou background. >> reporter: kerry will get the top diplomatic job he wanted for years. kerry is set to be confirmed friday. as important clinton she is still not discussing her plans for the 2016 election. but she did say she will write a memoir as soon as she steps down. reporting live on capitol hill, danielle leigh, news4. >>> we turn to the weather now. oh, my goodness, what a day we had today. like a wonderful pr
? >> reporter: he obviously has some big pumps to fill, if you will. secretary of state clinton traveled more than any other secretary of state in history. i don't think this is a case of, you know, who batted cleanup after babe ruth because john kerry, as you outlined in your introduction, has the credentials, has been in the senate for so main years, was a highly decorated veteran in vietnam and is, in fact, a child of the foreign service who has lived overseas as a child with his patients in berlin and switzerland and some other areas as well. it's the same old hotspots that have been in the past-war era beginning with the east. syria now the hot spot. what to do in egypt as the situation and civil unrest continues there as well. obviously the administration has tried to re-emphasize or at least turn its attention now and emphasize east asia and particularly china. senator kerry, soon to be secretary kerry presumably, is going to be a taking a forthright stance against intellectual property theft. that's something he's on the record as fighting against as well. i also mention climate chang
tonight, president obama and secretary clinton's 60 minutes interview may have made some news 2016. bob gates, the first thing he said it me, first week or two, and he obviously, had been through seven presidents or something. he says, mr. president, one thing i can guarantee is that at this moment, somewhere, somehow, somebody in the federal government is screwing up. [ laughter ] >> bret: thanks for inviting us into your house tonight, that's it for "special report," fair, balanced and unafraid. >> this is the fox report. tonight, severe weather in the central u.s. tornado watches from the gulf coast to the great lakes and a potential blizzard following that live to the fox weather center. plus, president obama unveiling his plan for immigration reform. >> i'm here today because the time has come for common sense, comprehensive immigration reform.

clinton who was a pretty steady very prepared in her testimony. on key issues, he seems to not know what the president's approach is to iran, for instance. he talked about containment. that's not the president and this administration's policy. and he just seems unsteady. he called the government of iran legitimate. it, of course, is not a legitimate government. and it seems to be rigged in favor of the current president so this is a surprise. here's a man who obviously does know the issues well and has been prepared for this moment and talking to senators over these last couple of days and weeks preparing for this very moment. so for him to come in and stumble on the high profile questions and questions that he certainly knew were coming is a bit of a surprise. >> right. let me play an exchange, colonel, folks are talking about right now. another between senator john mccain and chuck hagel, this one regarding syria. let's listen in, please. >> do you believe that we should be more engaged in syria? >> i know this administration is very engaged in working with its partners. >> so you don'
